"Bachelor’s Opportunities Locally Delivered" lets you earn a SUNY Fredonia degree on the Jamestown Community College campus

SUNY Fredonia has partnered with Jamestown Community College to offer students the opportunity to earn both a two-year and four-year degree in select education and business programs without moving from one campus to the other. 

How it works

A student can attend Jamestown Community College and earn an Associate's Degree. Students can then stay and take classes on the JCC campus through a partnership with SUNY Fredonia for two more years to earn a Bachelor's Degree with the convenience of staying in the southern tier.

SUNY Fredonia professors will teach on the JCC campus and courses will be broadcast simultaneously to the JCC Cattaraugus County Campus.
